Las Vegas Themed Wedding Ideas
Weddings are a special time for couples, and many want to capture the fun and excitement through incorporating a Las Vegas theme. If you are a fun, outgoing couple, a Vegas theme may be just what you are looking for. What could be more fun than a casino-style party with friends and family?
When you first begin planning your wedding, select a colour palette to set the mood of your Vegas wedding. Neon colours are a great way to make Vegas come alive. Use neon colours sparingly, however; too much neon can harm your eyes and the eyes of guests. Using pastels pinks, greens or blues ushers in images and the nostalgia of the 1950’s, which may help you bring that time period and the grandness of Vegas in the 50’s to your wedding.
You can also incorporate colours from casinos into your wedding - the green from gambling tables and the colour of money, the red and blue of poker chips, and the gold of coins from slot machines. Many wedding shops like Pink Frosting have party supplies that cater to couples looking to add the excitement and adventure of Vegas into their big day.
Bring Vegas to your ceremony through wedding decorations and your choice of officiate. Turn your venue into a Vegas wedding chapel with tulle along the chairs or pews and pink and red hearts. Grab some ideas for visuals at your wedding chapel look from websites such as Viva Las Vegas Weddings that specialize in Elvis wedding packages in the heart of Sin City.
You might notice that many couples that get married in Vegas have an Elvis impersonator officiate at their wedding. This can make the fun and excitement of Vegas come to life at your wedding, too, no matter where you have your big day! Find a local Elvis impersonator in a business directory or ask a good friend that is skilled at acting to dress as Elvis and officiate for you. With Elvis officiating, your guests will be delighted and your wedding will feel as if you have travelled all the way to Vegas.
Decorate tables at your reception with poker chips and dim the lights to make guests feel like they are in a casino. Create light smoke with a fog machine to get the casino feel without actual cigarette smoke. If you are able to rent supplies, check if the vendor has casino supplies like roulette and craps tables or slot machines.
Hire local students to run games like black jack and review the rules with those who have not played the games before. You can even ask the hire company for recommendations of people that can run the casino-style reception. Give guests paper money and tokens to play with at the tables and slot machines. Rather than providing a large meal, bring out refreshments your guests might enjoy at a casino such as chips, finger foods and beer.
Finally, another way you can bring the fun party atmosphere of Las Vegas to your wedding is with a Vegas-themed wedding cake. Ask the cake decorator to use a casino theme for your cake or incorporate the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign as a cake topper. There is a growing trend with brides and grooms to have cupcakes instead of a wedding cake, and you can still use a Vegas theme with the cupcakes. Use custom-made poker chips in the tops of the cupcakes and use Vegas colours for the frosting.
Bringing the fun of Vegas to your wedding is simple if you are willing to work hard and look for fun ways to bring the excitement to your wedding. Shop the range of Las Vegas and Casino themed wedding decorations at Australia's #1 online wedding shop, Pink Frosting.
